Mocking: Ziggy AnsahApril 9th, 2013
When the Bucs let banged up defensive end Michael Bennett walk away, the move, though smart, left the Bucs thin up front. And vulnerable.
So Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik is putting much faith in oft-injured Da’Quan Bowers to put in a full season healthy at left end? That may be a gamble. That’s not even factoring in whether Adrian Clayborn can fully recover from an ugly knee injury (before you type it, not every NFL player is Adrian Peterson).
Oh, and Roy Miller is gone, too. The Bucs’ defensive line, not exactly reminiscent of the Fearsome Foursome, is now razor thin.
That’s why Joe will not be shocked at all if the Bucs pick a defensive lineman at No. 13.
Ansah would be a hell of an addition, and in Joe’s mind Ansah would immediately give the Bucs a feared pass rush. Ansah is a rare cat. He has size, he has speed, his arms are crazy long. He could be the next Too Tall Jones.
Oh, and give the Bucs some depth up front as well.
